15 ja 90 minutit tasuta parkimist

  • Kinnitades parkimise algusaja (parkimiskellaga või paberile märkides), saab A ja C piirkonnas 15 ja B piirkonnas 90 minutit tasuta parkida. Kirjalik teade peab olema vormistatud arusaadavalt, väljast nähtavalt ja loetavalt. Pärast tasuta parkimisaja lõppemist peab sõidukijuht parkimise eest tasuma piirkonnas kehtiva määra järgi.
  • Parkimisautomaat liidab tasuta parkimisaja pileti lõpuajale automaatselt juurde (A ja C piirkonnas 15 minutit ja B piirkonnas 90 minutit).
  • Ühe parkimise jooksul saab kasutada vaid ühte tasuta parkimise aega.
  • Mobiiliga maksmisel tuleb parkimisaeg käivitada teenusepakkuja juhise järgi. Mobiiliga saab tasuta parkimisaega kasutada, lisades SMS-sõnumis piirkonna tähise järele vastava minutite arvu (A15 / B90 / C15).

Parkimise algusaja märkimine

Mootorsõidukijuht peab parkimistasu maksma enne või vahetult pärast parkimise alustamist. Tasuta parkimisaja kasutamisel tuleb tähistada parkimise algusaeg. Selleks soovitame kirjutada kellaaeg paberile või kasutada ühe osutiga parkimiskella. Kahe osutiga parkimiskella kasutades tuleb lähtuda mehaanilise kella tööpõhimõtetest, st kellaaja lugemisel hinnatakse mõlema osuti asukohta. parkimisteade oleks väljastpoolt näha. Kui mootorsõidukijuht ei ole parkimise alustamisest teatanud, tekib parkimistasu maksmise kohustus parkimise alustamise hetkest.

Pane tähele!

  • Mobiilse parkimise puhul kehtib päevapileti arvestus. Nt kui pargitakse viis tundi ning selle aja tasu on võrdne päevapileti maksumusega, saab sõidukit parkida veel 19 tundi ehk päevapileti tasu eest saab parkida kokku 24 tundi. Pärast seda saadetakse SMS lõpetamise ja jätkamise võimaluse kohta. Näide: alustan parkimist esmaspäeval kell 10 ja SMS saadetakse teisipäeval kell 10.
  • Eraparklates võivad parkimistingimused erineda.
